Former UFC ring girl Natasha Wicks has her sights set on strutting her stuff around a
CAGE track? The once collegiate athlete plans to start training for a possible run at the the 2016 Olympics.
I still stay pretty involved in the MMA industry, and I’m actually ring girl-ing again now for the new, biggest, all-women’s MMA organization — Invicta Fighting Championships — so I still do it, I still model, I still do all that stuff, but my running has become my main focus, my main passion.
Now I’m in serious training for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. My goals are to compete on a national and world level in the 5K, 10K and half-marathon and dominate the Olympic trials and then place in the Top Three at the Olympics. [Las Vegas Sun]
Natasha gets back to the cage this weekend at the debut of the Invicta Fighting Championships (IFC) in Kansas City.
